Avery James Designs is a Brooklyn-based grassroots label that products accessories designed with the modern professional in mind. Avery James Designs is not just an accessories label it’s a story of perseverance and determination. Founded on December 28, 2011, ALD was formed in tribute to Mark’s son Avery James, who passed away in 2006, he was just 3 year old. Avery’s original footprint, which is used as the logo, also represents Mark’s philanthropic goal to provide opportunities of a better life for less fortunate children. In December 2012, ADJ launched it’s first collection of Unisex bags and Dog Tag necklaces and is now in collaboration with Art in Motion & HAUP (Haitian-American United for Progress) With every sale, ADJ donates $10 to help fund art and educational programs in the desolate hills of Haiti.
